Ideas Are A Dime A Dozen

I often hear people say that they have a great idea for a business but they are missing something to make it a reality. They don’t know how much it would cost to start up. They don’t know how to develop for the internet. They don’t know where to get financing. They don’t know where to start.

These are real barriers to starting a business but they are not as big a barrier as your own inertia. No one is going to start a business for you. You have to take action to accomplish anything. Falling in love with your idea and dreaming of the day you’ll have a successful business, won’t accomplish anything.

Now, more than ever before, resources are available to help an entrepreneur on his or her journey to success. The Canadian and American governments each have extensive resources to help people start businesses. There are many blogs, like this one, dedicated to small business and entrepreneurship. The resources are there to help you when you get stuck along the way. However, what all these resources can’t do is get you started. Only you can take action.

That’s why ideas are a dime a dozen and taking action is everything.
